The Yankees dominance ended after the 01 WS against the D'backs. The Boss panicked and started signing anyone and everyone. Instead of players you could count on like O'Neil, Tino, etc. they grabbed Giambi, Kevin Brown, Arod, etc and the run was over. They were still making the post season but they weren't a winning ball club. It took 8 years to get back. That's where the Sox are now.....signing all the big contracts, winning a bunch of games, but choking when it counts.

Ever wonder why people think Yankees and Sox fans are cunts? This statement. As a Padre fan I'd take a 83-81 season and be happy.

I read this list today and felt like.......just go to the Cubs


Edgar Renteria, Julio Lugo, J.D. Drew, Daisuke Matsuzaka, John Lackey, Marco Scutaro, Mike Cameron, Carl Crawford and Bobby Jenks.

Since 2005, Epstein has signed those nine players to contracts totaling $462 million, with an additional $51.1 million paid to a Japanese team to acquire Matsuzaka. Of that $513 million spent, and those nine players, only Scutaro has been worth every dime of his contract -- and his deal was only for two years and $12.5 million.

Peter King writes:

• One note, perhaps apropos of nothing, perhaps apropos of everything. In June, my wife and I went to visit my brother-in-law and his family in Pittsburgh. We stayed downtown and planned to go see the Red Sox play Pittsburgh on a Friday night. When we arrived that afternoon, we saw that we were in the Red Sox team hotel. Our room wasn't ready upon arrival, so we sat in the lobby and waited for the room to be made up.
Around 3 or so, David Ortiz walked into the lobby with a couple of friends. A minute or so later, Kevin Youkilis walked into the lobby. He was 10 feet from Ortiz. I'm virtually certain they saw each other, but they didn't acknowledge each other. Youkilis asked the bellman if he could get a taxi. One of Ortiz's friend had a white Yukon brought to the front of the hotel. Within 15 seconds of each other, the Yukon and the taxi appeared, the taxi right behind the Yukon in the driveway of the hotel. Ortiz and friends walked out and got into the Yukon. Youkilis walked out and got into the cab. Both left, presumably for the ballpark, the cab right behind the Yukon.
First thing I thought of: Twenty-five players, 25 cabs, 2011 version. Surprising that two guys in the middle of a lineup are either both blind or simply do not like each other? No. But they can't share a five-minute ride to the ballpark?

Peter King Sox talk is awful on Twitter and his own column.

One of the few people who you actually like less/dislike more because of his Tweets.

They reek of arrogance and an absolute lack of humility.

They are as unlikable a team as I can remember in a long time. Gutless? Drew, Youk, Lackey, Beckett, Lowrie to start... I know I left some out but I'm tired of talkig about this bunch of overpaid chumps. Fuck them, its Football and Hockey season now.

96.62% of 20,809 voters on the Boston.com poll want JD Drew gone.
Who could have possibly voted to bring him back?
